Hard track
This return walk starts at the Robinsons Knob trail car park and takes you through the New England National Park to the rocky plateau with great views of the Bellinger River in the valley. There is a series of small rock scrambles to get onto the plateau. The plateau is made of trachyte (a type of igneous rock) and forms a small section of the ancient Ebor Volcano. Today the plateau is home to low bush providing fantastic views in clear weather. Let us begin by acknowledging the Dunghutti people, Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
